Jasper Avenue is Edmonton’s original Main Street. At one time, not so long ago, the Line was connected over Jasper Avenue by a rail bridge and the space was called “9th Street Subway.” High Level Line takes a cue from its past and provides a multi-modal bridge over Jasper Avenue that allows users to bypass (or join) the busy street below.
Shops and restaurants animate the space beneath the bridge and contribute to the dynamic street life of Jasper Avenue. Generous stairs and ramps take visitors from the bridge back down to street level easily and intuitively. Additional access to the developments is provided on the bridge level–creating a concentrated energy at this critical node.
